Restored Carriage Accommodation

In the late ’80′s when Undara Experience founder, Gerry Collins, drove past some old railway carriages on a disused siding adjacent to the Mareeba North Queensland Sale Yards. The idea was born and the turn of the century Queensland railway carriages were lovingly restored to their former glory. They now lie beneath tall, shady gum trees, the very trees this unique style of accommodation was designed to preserve. 

Charming, compact and comfortable, with covered decks to watch wildlife and enjoy the restful bush sounds. Winner of Australia’s Most Unique Accommodation, a night in these special rooms in this special atmosphere will be something to tell your friends about.


Wildlife at Sunset Tour

At dusk, be taken to the entrance of a lava tube to watch thousands of tiny insect-eating Micro bats as they emerge from the darkness.
